St Bride's, Fleet Street is a warm and welcoming Christian community, and one of the most famous and most fascinating historic churches in Central London. 

St Bride's is known worldwide as the Journalists' Church, offering a spiritual home to all who work in the media. However, our ministry extends to everyone who lives and works within our parish, and to the thousands of visitors who come to us every year. Our beautiful Wren church provides a place of peace and a spiritual haven in the heart of the city for all who come. With one of the best professional choirs in the country, we are also well known for the outstanding quality of our music and of the worship we offer.

A place of Christian worship for 1500 years, we continue to proclaim the love of God here. Whether journalist, tourist, City resident or worker, you will always be made welcome.
Alison Joyce, Rector of St Bride's

'Why be envious because I am generous?' (Matthew 20:15)

The Parable of the labourers in the vineyard sounds very unfair to us who are used to employment law and the market enonomy. Christianity is not about fairness but about generosity. The Kingdom of Heaven is a massively generous gift that is far more than we deserve. No matter how late we sincerely turn to God, that generous gift is there for each of us.

Lord God, through your love and generosity we have the gift of eternal life. May we always respond with thankful hearts towards you. Amen.
